Title: NESHAP for Benzene Emissions from Coke By-Product Recovery Plants (Renewal).
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1080.12, OMB Control Number 2060-0185.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2007. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the Start Printed Page 70839collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) were promulgated on December 15, 1989, and amended on February 12, 1999, and October 17, 2000. Owners or operators of existing and new facilities that are furnace or foundry coke by-product recovery plants that produce benzene emissions subject to NESHAP subpart L must submit notification of and application for construction, reconstruction or modification, and notice of the anticipated date of initial and actual startup. Owners and operators of regulated facilities must also submit: notifications of performance tests; any physical or operational change which may increase the emission rate; implementation of equipment leakage requirements; and notification that the requirements of 40 CFR part 61, subpart L, 40 CFR part 61, subpart V, and 40 CFR part 61, subpart A, have been met. In addition, these owners and operators must submit performance test reports and semiannual reports. Records must be maintained of leak detection and repair logs, the design requirements of closed-vent systems and control devices, applicable valve information, design control device, plan operations and corrective action, compliance tests, reference values of monitored parameters, and monitoring results and exceedances. In addition, records must be kept of annual furnace and foundry coke production for furnace coke by-product recovery plants, monitoring data, monitoring system calibration checks, and the occurrence and duration of periods where the monitoring system is malfunctioning or inoperative.
Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 61, subpart L, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private.
An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Number for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 92 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
Respondents/Affected Entities: Benzene emissions from coke by-product recovery plants.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 17.
Frequency of Response: Semiannually, and on occasion.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,137.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $199,375, which includes $0 annualized Capital Startup costs, $0 Operating and Maintenance Costs (O&M), and $199,375 annualized Labor Costs.
Changes in the Estimates: The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. There is only one small change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The change is caused by different methods of rounding numbers. The previous ICR shows (3,138) as the labor hours, however, this ICR uses the exact hours of (3,137). The growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.
Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR, and there is no change in burden to industry.Start Signature
